Why did you call your church ‘The Journey’?
The name fits well with our vision to meet people on the journey of life and to lead them to begin the greatest journey of all; following Jesus Christ.
Are you connected to a denomination?
No. But we are happy to work with others for the furtherance of the gospel.
Why do you meet in the Leisureplex?
Church is much more about people than a building. We intentionally chose our meeting place with the aim of connecting with people who have no church connection. Our meeting venue reflects our vision of taking God’s message to where people are.
Do you see yourselves meeting in the Leisureplex long term?
We are very happy there at the moment but we are open to how the Lord might lead us in the future.
Do you always meet in the Leisureplex?
We meet in the Leisureplex on a Sunday morning but on Thursday and Sunday evenings we meet in The Avenue coffee shop, Wallace Avenue, Lisburn.
How many people go to The Journey?
On a Sunday morning we currently have around 70 adults and 30 children.
Do you have church membership?
Not at the moment but it’s something we are exploring and praying over.
What are your particular theological distinctives?
At The Journey we focus on the core beliefs of evangelical Christianity – see these beliefs on the ‘core beliefs’ section of our website. This is where we place our emphasis and we choose to embrace diversity in areas outside of our statement of faith.
How can I give financially to The Journey Church?
On a Sunday morning we have an offering box at the door and people have the opportunity to give then. However, most people choose to give directly into our bank account via a monthly standing order. We are a registered UK charity and can therefore claim back tax on any money given to our church by UK taxpayers. Contact us if you desire to give to The Journey Church.
What is your leadership structure?
The Journey is an Elder-led church which is governed by a plurality of men who work alongside the congregation as they provide direction for the church. See our leadership page for more details.
